Kate Winslet Covers 'V Magazine' September 2011

Kate Winslet Covers 'V Magazine' September 2011

Kate Winslet graces the cover of V Magazine‘s September issue, on newsstands September 8.

The 35-year-old British actress worked with photographer Mario Testino for The Heroes Issue, where she channeled one of her own heroes, Elizabeth Taylor.

Here’s what Kate had to share with the mag:

On her childhood: “I was extremely self sufficient. At the age of 9 I knew I wanted to be an actress. I had that sort of determination that that I can imagine in 9 or 10-year-old girl, for a parent, must have been fairly disconcerting … I didn’t know how on earth I was going to pull any of that off, but I was just sure of it.”

On nude scenes: “I hate it! Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say ‘Oh f—’ let’s do it.’ And boom. If you complain about it or procrastinate it’s not going to go away. It’s a profoundly bizarre thing to do … You can literally be tangled in sheets, and you turn to the other actor and say ‘What the f— are we doing?’ ‘Dear Mum, at work today I had so-and-so’s left nut sack pressed against my cheek.’ It’s sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms.”

    beautiful shoot! She looks like Madonna on the Cover! lol

  • A

    If you hate it, why do you do it?

  • vanessa

    very beautiful. Excellent editorial + cover.

  • Marisa

    @A Because she’s an actress! She’s passionate and gifted enough to put her mind in a different place. She’s talking about hating nude scenes in the moments leading up to them, but during the actual scene, she’s ok because she’s inside the character’s head.

  • Sayer

    She’s no Liz Taylor, sorry.

    If she hates nudity so much, then why does she do it in every single movie? You’d think she’s an established enough star to say no to nude scenes.

  • Anon

    i really like her, until she opens her mouth!

    I dont think she meant its something that causes her enormous pain, but that she doesn’t enjoy it. Its no doubt awkward but sometimes it can enhance the story.

  • Kate

    Gorgeous! Agreed.

  • dearren

    @Sayer: I guess Im the only one on the planet who thought Liz Taylor was nothing special. Sure she was pretty and glamorous with gorgeous eyes but…she always had a round chubby face with jowls. It made her look much older than she was. meh. Kate is amazing!

  • Tina

    Beautiful! Love her. One of the best actresses of our time.

  • clemato

    OUTSTANDING images. Little Edie-esque there with the scarves and turbans! Love that Dame Elizabeth Taylor is her hero actress/celeb/legend. Agreed!!!! As for sex scenes…. In HALF – probably less – of Kate’s films does she do sex scenes. If you’ve seen ALL of the films on her CV you people would know that. Do research before you bitch slap the woman on the internet.

  • ellie’

    Stunning…One of the best actress ever…!

  • Jessica

    Simple and eloquent photo! Love her honesty in these photos. She seems to provide a very down to earth and truthful statement in everything she does. Love her :)

  • Angela Jolie

    Scarlett Johansson has a healthy model figure that boasts an ample cleavage, fuller legs and a fuller backside. I just love her curves. She’s so shapely. She’s a great example to women around the country

    Wow, I’m impressed. She actually has clothes on.

  • OK

    That interview– ha! She is hilarious! And talented beyond words, and gorgeous. PERCECTION.

  • John R.

    Kate is extremely talented and a beautiful woman, but this photoshoot is ridiculous. Even the combined efforts of Mario Testino and Photoshop can’t create a resemblance to Ms. Taylor.

  • olga

    no-no I don’t like this pics at all. Somehow she looks like Madonna in some of the photos.

  • james

    What’s wrong with you guys? She’s obviously trying to evoke Elizabeth Taylor not Modonna. Sheesh.

  • SarahNL

    wow, beautiful pictures. I didn’t even read the article.. and I automatically thought of Elizabeth Taylor. :) and I absolutely loved Elizabeth Taylor!
